Directors and Management

"The last couple of years has had a devastating effect on global health and economies and Australia has not been left out.  Here in Western Australia and in particular the Pilbara, the Board and the Organisation have remained committed to our focus of ensuring the overall health and well-being of our people, clients and the communities we serve and have satisfactorily overcome most of the issues presented with strict Government compliance led by the Chief Executive Officer and her Management Team.

We are very proud to be associated with this long standing organisation that is committed to providing such high quality services, employment and growth opportunities for its people and the Board will continue to build and strengthen the business with enthusiasm and drive.

We will continue to build organisational excellence in our people, our systems and processes whilst adhering to a policy of strict regulatory compliance.”
